July’s Envy

posted by on September 26 at 11:37 AM

This is my guess. July wants…

Maybe if July could write a song that sounds like some kinda Nu-Country Leann Rimes/Faith Hill type crap which would land her an iPod commercial, maybe she'd do alright.

Zing.

Other than the fact that they work in completely different mediums and evidence no particular similarity in style or presentation they are exactly the same.

They even sorta look similar if you squint.

They're both going for the ethereal blue-eyed humanist moon waif kind of image, so I guess it's a fair assessment based on that. Pretty rare niche. But who is to say there isn't room enough for both of them?

Miranda July can only make that face (vacant doe eyes, mouth slightly agape) when having her picture taken. If you don't believe me, check out the cover of the latest issue of Bust!

Funny, that was my default expression in elementary school. Someone eventually pointed it out to me and I trained myself to keep my mouth shut. Still stare vacantly from time to time. Guess I'm a bit of a daydreamer.

I hate her for that look. She's fake and so is her product. It's so fucking lame. She's so fucking lame.

I couldn't agree less. Feist is a major label recording artist. Even as an indie musician, *Leslie* Feist went by one name only (a pet peeve of mine). She was destined for iPod commercials. For now at least, July seems committed to the indie sphere--particularly in terms of her music, which continues to take a backseat to her cinematic and literary endeavors. Plus, I don't think she's quite as fond of the auto-erotic asphyxiation look.
